The Baluan Sholak Palace of Sports is over 45 years old. In his lifetime, he has been in various types of property and has undergone many changes. In the 90s, the state was forced to sell its property to support the economy. The same fate befell the palace named after the 50th anniversary of October.
However, the complex was later returned to the state again and today is a multifunctional complex with a central ice arena. The palace itself has been overhauled to meet high international standards.
Today, the palace is a 4-story building with an ice arena, lobbies, offices, locker rooms, VIP parking, a room for judges, a medical station, etc. The total area of the facility is more than one hectare.
